We are going to look for votes everywhere, so that our people have a chance to vote. Hopefully this time round the cows in Ntungamo will not vote. We hope real people will be given the opportunity to vote” Birigwa said.
He added that as a party, they hopped that their competitors especially the ruling NRM and Mr. Museveni will allow all the candidates to access the country and reach the people and be able to take their messages to them.
